Following Singapore's founding, migrants looking to make their fortune in Singapore began
arriving in droves. Life was not easy back then for anyone on the street and home often

carts, the practice of which contributed to Chinatown's other name - Niu Che Shui, known as
Over the years, Chinatown has changed and evolved, but it is filled with traces of our beloved enclave of culture and tradition, defined by the very people who live, work and play on the streets of Chinatown.

Catch a glimpse of Singapore’s most majestic icon,
the Merlion, a mythical creature
that’s half-fish and half-lion. The Merlion combines two elements of Singapore’s
identity—its body symbolises the fishing villages of Singapore’s past, while its
lion head is a symbol of Singapura (“lion city” in Sanskrit). Today, you can glimpse
this legend at Merlion Park. Spouting water from its mouth, the Merlion statue stands

This icon is a ‘must-see’ for tourists visiting Singapore, similar to other significant landmarks around the world.
